The nice thing about running is that you can do it anywhere, anytime, and don’t have to worry about equipment. When it came time for a team-building event, we decided what better way to participate as a team than to run a 10KM race together? It was the perfect event for us as it was held at Appleby College in Oakville, which is so close to home. I registered our team, Kinetic Konnection, and we let the training begin! We all worked hard to prepare (some more than others!) and got ready for the big race.
The day of the race came up in no time. We all showed up in the freezing cold, some of us shuttled in while some of us were lucky enough to be dropped off at the front gate! Everyone wore their team shirts, their shoes, and their favourite compression socks.
Yep, that’s right, compression socks! The Sigvaris, Achi++, and CEP brands were all represented, and you can browse the selections we all wore here.
We gathered by the start line, wished each other luck, tried to calm some of our nerves, and off we went!
It was an inspiring day, watching people of all ages and body types pushing their limits and encouraging each other. I had a “happy-proud” moment at one point during the run; I was happy to see how many other runners had their favourite compression socks on, and I was proud because every day we play a small role in educating and advocating for these amazing socks and the host of benefits they provide for every individual who wears them.
We’re always happy to help you find your next favourite pair of socks. Contact us any time for more information, or drop by any of our 6 locations! We hope to see you soon, and maybe at the next race!
